The Creation Of KA-BAR Knives

From its origins just across the Allegheny River in Tidioute, PA, in the late 1800s, to its present-day manufacturing plant in Olean, NY, KA-BAR has consistently made some of the best hunting, survival and sporting knives in the world. The KA-BAR name became famous during WWII when its Fighting Utility Knife became standard issue for Marines shipping out to the South Pacific; the knife’s performance in the battle for Guadalcanal cemented the legacy of KA-BAR.

There is something enchanting about a well crafted knife, I don’t know why but I have a tendency to like knives and I’m more afraid of knife then I am of a gun . A lot more damage can be done with a knife then a gun, and it can get a lot more painful. I have to special KA-BAR Knives that I love, they are extremely well crafted and beautiful blades and honestly they look like something out of a modern Rambo, and watching this video makes me want to purchase a few more from them, check out the video and enjoy.

Samurai Demise

Up until the 1800s there were Samurais in Japan, then came the battle between the gun and the sword, but the Samurai spirit still lives within the Japan. The sad part is that even the acting roles of Samurai practitioners has decreased drastically over the past few years. I don’t even remember seeing a really good Samurai movie in a while, these guys practice sword fighting constantly to perfect their form, and it would be a huge loss if we lost this art form.

Review: Spartacus

Betrayed by the Romans. Forced into slavery. Reborn as a Gladiator. The classic tale of the Republic’s most infamous rebel comes alive in the graphic and visceral new series, “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”. Torn from his homeland and the woman he loves, Spartacus is condemned to the brutal world of the arena where blood and death are primetime entertainment. But not all battles are fought upon the sands. Treachery, corruption, and the allure of sensual pleasures will constantly test Spartacus. To survive, he must become more than a man. More than a gladiator. He must become a legend.

Below is a slight short warning of the show but it doesn’t even define the gruesomeness of this show, you think that it couldn’t get any crazier but it does and they set their limits very far.

Spartacus depicts extreme sensuality, brutality and language that some viewers may find objectionable.

The show is a historical portrayal of ancient Roman Society and the intensity of the content is to suggest an authentic representation of that period

This show took a quick turn for the better, it got a mixed reception of people liking it and disliking it. I for one wasn’t too keen on it from the first few episodes since the graphics seemed a bit cheap, but I was very mistaken, it takes a quick turn for the better and very quickly. As the statement above says its a graphic representation of that period, not the noble kind we are used to seeing of Romans but the raw and ruthless that would show of the time. The show revolves around Spartacus and the Gladiators, and it is filled with twist after twist. The show is just greatly thoughout and its different the show Rome that people might compare it to, its not for everyone’s appetite but nonetheless an amazing show which I’m looking forward to season 2 and not sure what to expect and the ending is epic.

Cup Of Tears – Samurai Short Film

Plot Summary:

Cup Of Tears follows a scorned geisha who creates a magical cup made of tears that causes any man who drinks from it to fall into a permanent sleep. One night the cup is stolen, setting off a chain of events that threatens civil war amongst the clans. Taro, a gifted samurai, sets out to find the cup and one who can break the spell.

I saw this short feature film and thought “where the hell is this movie”, only to know that this is still in development. Now this would be a very cool movie, I love martial airts/Japanese movies such as these, they are so damn cool and fun to watch. The story looks good and the fightign scenes are just amazing, I wish I could handle a sword like that.
